Analytical Package Description

Laboratory: Chemex Labs Limited

Till samples were dry sieved using an 8 inch sieve shaker.  The <63 µm fraction was analysed for Ag, As and Sb using atomic absorption spectroscopy (AAS).  Mercury analysis was performed by cold vapour atomic absorption spectrometry (Hg-CVAAS).  Au analysis was performed by Fire Assay-Neutron Activation Analysis (FA-NA).  The analyses were performed by Chemex Labs Ltd. in Mississauga, Ontario.
